    I saw a wasp upon a wall
    and did not like its face at all
    and so the creature had no time
    to wonder weather he liked mine.

    not by me

    I'll try to find out.

    I am a kettle
    I want to boil water
    I'm going to put it in a tea pot
    to make some tea.
    :confused:

    Re: Macs and Life

    What is your philosophy on life? God is. God is good. I am here. + or - a bunch of other stuff :p
    How do you go about living your life? one day at a time, looking for beauty and losing it too often.
    Who are you? I am. not to be confused with I AM. I am here, i am going to die.
    What do you want? forgiveness for being me?
    Where are you going? none of your business.
    Why? 'cos i said so.

    Life is simply a journey, as such you should follow what you what want and not let your every action be governed by others.

    I live my life in a way that amuses me. This sometimes sets off some people but they should deal with it.

    I am Durandal7, nothing more, nothing less. One human being among 6 billion.

    What I want is happiness and knowledge above all else. I obtain happiness from knowledge so I suppose it works out for the best.

    Life is a precious and rare thing, though the rare part is debatable. As far as I am concerned, matter is a byproduct of consciousness and time is not as we percieve it. Afterall, we only percieve time due to a chemical reaction which is very primitive method of understanding such a complex thing.

    Life is a mysterious and wonderful thing, much more then some people will admit. It amazes me how some people would rahter live misreably with money instead of pursuing hapiness at the expense of a few dollars/euros.

    Peace...

    Livin' life, livin' love, lovin' livin.

    [BTW - I know I exist because even if this is all an illusion, that's something and thus is proving stuff is.]

    Peacin' out. Some bits from my favorite rap song say it fairly well-

    spend your life gettin booty, smokin out, chasin stack,
    and you'll win the rat race but you'll still die a rat
    don't fight with Desire, don't be her tool
    kick back and relax, letcha common sense rule
    step back, step away, one step every day
    and you'll step from the wheel of the world to the Way
    learn to do like Pooh, flow like water roll down
    and get stack, get booty and be high on the Tao

    [death raps this bit]

    so don't fear me, 'cuz in me you see
    the truth of the life: that to live is to be!
    the fact of creation, the rush of sensation
    and living lives on through the Death inspiration
    and whether your life comes out pear-shaped or spherical
    good or bad, kid, it's whatcha get, and it's a miracle.

    life in my view is my silent pain that no one sees - that no one understands and no one will ever endure the pain and suffering i go about everyday, silently and hopelessly.

    After studying astronomy for quite some time, you have to just wonder why what we do actually matters. There are over 400 billion stars in our galaxy alone, and over 50 billion galaxies that we know of in the Universe.

    Just to add some perspective, the nearest star is, I believe, over 4 light years away. Crazy.

    We're here because we developed, no particular reason. At least as far as I see it.

    What is your philosophy on life? - Life is complex, but understand each piece, and you'll understand it all. Oh, and make the right connections, or, even better, be the one who people look to as a "connection."
    How do you go about living your life? - Stressed, albeit accomplished.
    Who are you? - I am Ryan.
    What do you want? - I want to be remembered.
    Where are you going? - To everywhere and anywhere.
    Why? - Because there's too many wonderful things to miss out on if you don't.

    No, I am Ryan.

    OK, we can share.

    My philosophy on life...I am insignificant and unique, just like everyone else. I am a mirical. A mirical that has happened over 7 billion times. I believe in a "higher power" but I don't think it has ever told us what to do beyond the instructions written in the laws of physics. I want to get to where I am going, because I don't have a choice but to go there. I will enjoy every last minute of it, and I will use a Mac along the way.

    My philosophy on life in that the point of life is to bring light, beauty, and love into as many places as you can and to try to stop yourself from creating pain for yourself or others.
    Who am I? All I know is that I have a body, so when I die, I have no clue what happens. I actually do believe in a sort of heaven after death, but I don't like to think about it too much. It stresses me out b/c I fret over the details over what it would be like. Being nonexistent and just having my body decompose may seem morbid, but to be it seems beautiful... strange, I know. Anyways, I don't fear death... and who I am is just some body and what makes me who I am are my DNA and my outside environment. I don't think it's bad for humans to care about things and feel as though they have free will, but I almost feel as if free will is an illusion and that we can't blame people because they're just a product of their DNA and surroundings, as am I.
    What do I want? I want fufillment. I want contentment and love and humanity pulsing through my veins.
    Where am I going? I expect my life path to be finish junior high, go to high school, go to college, intern some places, probs go to graduate school, and then I'll probably do something involving science, and I would love to be a professor in it but of course that requires being pretty brilliant and working lots, but I have a major passion for science.
